Trade Finance Global / Trade Finance Talks / UK and China: State of the Global Supply Chain Finance Market

Welcome to our Supply Chain Finance hub, showcasing China – UK Trade Research on Supply Chain Finance Market

A global view on supply chain volumes shows that most (65.8%) come from cross border sales orders rather than domestic orders, and recent forecasts expected a growth of 1.1%. Leading markets are Hong Kong and Singapore each having over 90% of their supply chain volume in cross border sale orders, and closely following are Germany and the UK each with over 70%. China had the smallest volume with cross-border markets amount to 36.1% indicating its autarky in today’s globalised world.



In collaboration with ICC United Kingdom and East & Partners, Trade Finance Global released its whitepaper at the ICC Beijing Annual Conference: State of the Supply Chain Finance Market 2019, focussing on the UK – China trade corridor.
